The Netherlands may be the first choice but Australia is the best alternative, where white South Africans could be culturally assimilated.
    Absolutely the white farmers should be welcomed in Australia & they eventually will be. I wish a few could come to the
    USA instead!

    This is just not true,I'm from Perth and they have assimilated very well indeed...BUT I don't think Farmers should be treated any differently to any other Migrant....anyway the Aus-Government decided today that NO they will NOT make an exception to our Immigration System for SA Farmers or anyone else.......Most Immigrants are coming from despicable situations,not just the South Africans

    Be real, now.

    Besides, the Syrians that are being taken in are coming with no money to their names as well.
    I am not sure targeted is the word, South Africa is simply a very violent place. You are still more likely to be murdered in South Africa as a black person t.han as a White person.

    That said although i accept the argument that White South Africans are facing a far smaller threat t.han others in the world, this would still beg the question of why Australia would want to turn them down. They are skilled workers who speak English, so considering the not insignificant risk they face as people combined with the potential benefit for Australia it seems like a no-brainer.

    I'm sure that's right, but probably because of demographics. Do you have per capita stats?
    See something, say something, get called an Islamophobe.
